The interview marks the Prime Minister's first appearance on the show in almost five years. He last appeared on the programme in 2017 as foreign secretary before appearing again in 2019 when he was seen walking into an industrial fridge to avoid being interviewed by Piers Morgan and Susanna. 

Viewers of the programme appeared to be divided over the interview, with some praising the mum-of-three for her interview skills, while others criticised her for not letting Boris answer her questions in full.
